    Default Mark Henry-Heel or Face

    Pretty simple one here. Which version of The world's strongest man do you prefer? If you've read any posts I've ever made about Mark Henry, you know I am and always have been a big fan of him. Yes, even I'm the Sexual Chocolate days.
    Mark is one of those guys who as monstrous as he is, and as freakishly strong as he is, never came across-to me at least-as a total monster. He has charisma and yeah, even charm. When he's playing the villain he's great, but I always preferred him as one of the good guys. His comic side gets a chance to come through, and he just seems more natural when he's smiling and having fun, then switches gears once The bell rings into beastmode. Heck, as we saw last Monday, flashes of humor during his match are a welcome sight.
    Thoughts? And please feel free to add in some of your favorite Mark Henry moments.

    I think you'd have to go with heel just because his in-ring style is heel-friendly and very awkward to translate into babyface character.

    But he has a fantastic character and personality that is capable of performing both roles and the grey areas in-between perfectly.

    I may be in the minority, but I think Mark is great at both, but he's not a babyface nearly often enough.

    His "I'm gonna kill you now" smile is the stuff of legend.

    Heel by a long, long way. I just don't think Mark Henry works as the happy-smiley-lovable babyface. Except when he's faking a retirement.

    I also think Mark Henry is one of WWE's better monster heels when it comes to feeding a face comeback.

    Give me a heel year long reign of terror as WWE champion where he destroys everybody. I'd take that over someones 15th or 11th or whatever how many umpteenth title reign we get instead. at the end of the year he gets beaten by someone not named Cena or Orton or Big Show or HHH.

    I prefer heel Mark Henry, but I dig him either way. He's fucking tremendous and I'm so glad he is signed with WWE for another 5 years. Great for the company.

    It's so difficult to be a good face character and I actually think Henry does it well. In a pro wrestling world where it's so much easier to be a heel, I prefer if Henry stayed a face.

    It seems almost every wrestler prefers being a heel, because there is way more freedom in it.

    He's been up there in line for a title shot for several months but hasn't got his chance thanks to Daniel Bryan and ADR 'fueding' with Cena.

    Unifying the belts is a terrible idea, especially for guys like Henry who have put their souls into the company.
    Thanks to Fresh Prince for the banner!

    He's better as a Tweener, someone who hurts people because he likes it and the crowd likes him for it.

    I prefer him face, but not Sexual Chocolate or Kool-Aid Man Mark Henry like we got in 2010. Just let him be him. A super strong monster that crushes people. Just let him crush the bad guys, instead.

    I think he does great work at both roles. Retirement promo one of my favorites in 15 years I've been watching.

    Heel = Menacing. Intimidating. Deceptive. That's What He Does... Awesome!
    Face = Somebody who invites Summer Rae into the ring to dance with him.

    As a heel I loved the shit talking Mark Henry, the things he yelled to the crowd were hilarious.

    Good as a face too.
